‘Shockingly Callous’: Fox News Fires Remaining Tucker Staffers In Show’s Final Stroke

Published on

In April, network executives informed Tucker Carlson that he was being let go as part of Fox News’ $787.5 million defamation settlement with Dominion Voting Systems.

“In the latest development to come three weeks after Carlson was removed from his role at the network on April 24, it has been reported that one of Fox Corp.’s eight board members was the one to tell the fired host that his ‘recent benching’ was the result of the secret condition in the Dominion settlement,” leftwing Rolling Stone magazine reported.

“According to Variety, the conversation between Carlson and the board member took place on April 26 – two days after the network announced Carlson’s involuntary departure from the company. The board member also reportedly told Carlson that the secret condition ensuring Carlson’s canning would not be found in any of the $787.5 million defamation settlement documents because it was a verbal agreement,” the article added.

Dominion Voting Systems representatives denied the existence of any secret agreements.

Tucker has since evolved and now reaches more individuals than ever before.

In a video heralding his return, he said, “There aren’t many platforms left that allow free speech,” “The last big one remaining in the world, the only one is Twitter, where we are now.”

“Twitter’s not a partisan site. Everyone’s allowed here, and we think that’s a good thing.”

Following the cancellation of his program, it became clear that Fox News preferred to have Carlson complete his $8 million-per-year contract until its expiration in 2025 rather than buy him out and risk losing him to a rival network.

Now that Tucker has moved on and is more successful than ever, Fox is targeting Tucker’s former employees.

As Fox unveils its new primetime lineup, the Daily Caller reports that the network has terminated the remaining Tucker’s program employees.

In a move described as “shockingly callous” by a former Fox News producer to the Daily Caller, the network fired at least nine of its remaining employees, including long-tenured producers.

The producer informed the Daily Caller that “some of the fired producers have been at Fox for well over a decade.”

Another former Fox producer told the Daily Caller that members of Tucker Carlson’s team were frequently assured that their jobs would be safe after he left the network, most recently last week when two of Carlson’s producers left the station.

The former producer told the Daily Caller that employees who had previously worked on the programs of Bill O’Reilly and Dan Bongino were simply reassigned to other shows following the departures of both presenters. The employees were informed that they may apply for any available position within the organization.

The former producer was informed by staff members that the firings were obviously a “anti-Tucker move to purge any of his remaining stamp he had on the network as Fox begins this new lineup change.”

The information was released shortly after Fox News declared that Jesse Watters will take Carlson’s position at 8:00 p.m.
